Otoplasty Ear Correction/Reshaping

We all have a feature that makes us feel a bit self-conscious. But when that feature is as prominent as our ears, it can really take a toll on our self-esteem. Protruding Ears are normally a hereditary condition.
Few surgical procedures are as satisfying to patients as Ear Correction or Reshaping surgery, also known as Otoplasty. It involves correction of protruding ears that stick out too far from the head. Having protruding ears will rarely affect a person’s hearing but will frequently cause embarrassment and psychological distress. Ears are one of the first parts of the body to develop to full adult size, so if they protrude, they can be particularly noticeable in children, and this regularly leads to teasing or bullying.
If the problem is identified closely after birth, then the condition can be treated conservatively, simply by applying an appropriate splint. However, only a few months later, the cartilage of the ear will have become considerably stiffer, and the splint may need to be in place for many months, even then not always guaranteeing success. Typically, after the age of six months, the only viable option is surgical correction.
Adults with protruding ears can experience low self-esteem or practical issues such as wearing certain types of head attire or hairstyles. In addition to improving one’s self-esteem and making the individual feeling better about his/her appearance, Otoplasty also provides dramatic results with No visible scarring, short recovery period and it is also one of the safest facial surgical procedures.
